STARS & PUZZLES PUZZLES&FUN London Lite Tuesday, 3 November 2009 27 Intheright-handpicture,Alisonsfringeislonger,hercigarettehasgone, hertopislonger,thepatternonherkneehasalargerblackpatchand therearemorestripesonherrightleg Once your ruler Venus joins the sun in accenting certain persistent issues involving finances, as of this weekend, you should finally be in a position to confront others. Between now and then, make gathering facts about whos done and said what a priority. Having these facts to hand will make things a whole lot easier. Ordinarily youd be right to keep potentially contentious information to yourself. However, a major conflict is about to blow up. Say what needs to be said now. You will not only avoid being blamed, the resulting insights could prevent those conflicts turning into serious battles. Often you brush aside differences, assuming that if theyre really important your attention will be called to them. However, these particular issues matter more than you realise and, in ignoring them, youre causing upset. They arent that complicated, and addressing them now will mean a great deal to those concerned. Changes in circumstances, a shift in your own goals or the situation of others. All of these are contributing to the complications currently shaking up your daily life. Disruptive as they are, theyre forcing you to conduct an overdue review of your long-term plans and priorities. The arrangements youre making may seem simple to you. But certain people whose co-operation youll need just dont understand your approach, or the thinking behind your aims. Complicated as it may be, you must communicate with them. Although it will be difficult, gradually youll figure out how to explain things. When you made certain promises, it was in a moment of compassion for someone who was struggling. While you still care about them, you simply cant do as much to help as you hoped. Tempting as it is to withdraw discreetly for fear of causing upset, tell them. Theyll understand. Born under the rulership of the gracious Venus, you try to find a diplomatic way to approach even the trickiest of situations. Employ tact now, however, and one particularly contentious individual wont take what you say seriously. Try speaking their language of aggression instead. A Gemini enjoys nothing more than connecting with somebody whos equally as interested in whats going on, and in discussing it. While your friends may have a similar temperament, you cant choose family or colleagues. In fact, many here havent your interests, which explains their present lack of enthusiasm. Few things are more rewarding than tender moments with loved ones. However, somebody is trying to convince you a seriously unwise scheme is worthwhile, and could withhold their affections until you buckle. This is nothing less than emotional blackmail. Ignore all their entreaties. Difficult as it is to believe, youre about to experience an amazing breakthrough in a situation that has been as frustrating as its been perplexing. However, this cant be rushed. Certain other changes need to take place first, and as you have no control over them, you have little choice but to bide your time for a while. Dont be surprised if youre suddenly facing perplexing tensions with partners at work or at home. The planetary taskmaster, Saturn, has just moved to accent this sector of your chart. This means its time to resolve any issues youve been hoping or pretending dont matter. Youre about to discover that they do. Answer:hand-roux-buck-Anne(starofTheFixerAndrewBuchan) No 672 ACROSS 1.
